Tips- If you can’t tolerate the pepper heat, reduce pepper by half. My mom used to make this dish in an iron kadai, that give a blackish brown color and enhance the taste of the curry. I don’t have that so using a non-stick pan. I have used tamarind juice, that really enhance the taste of the dish. If you want you can use coconut vinegar as it is a traditional vinegar.
